Artful Dodge Discussion

I'd suggest trying to get more unblockable spells, like Whispersilk Cloak or Artful Dodge or something like that!

I would consider something like this:

subtract all Charmbreaker Devils because it costs a lot.

subtract all Sphinx of Magosi because there are better ways to get card advantage

subtract all Goblin Electromancer

subtract all Aqueous Form because it gives you no instant or sorcery triggers

subtract all Lightning Strike because it is basically Lightning Bolt but worse.

subtract all Pyre Hound because it is a Kiln Fiend but worse.

add 1 Talrand, Sky Summoner because he is cheap and the more of him you have, the more likely you are to draw into him.

add any # of cards like Ovinize because they are amazing combat tricks.

add any # of cards like Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Serum Visions, Telling Time, Opt...

add 2 Lightning Bolt

add 1 Arcane Melee because it is a better electromancer.

add any # of cards like Slip Through Space, Distortion Strike, Ghostform, and Artful Dodge.

add 1 Kiln Fiend.

The removals don't completely cover the additions, but I am positive you could figure something out if you wanted to do all of them. Also, sorry I wasn't the person you asked for, but I haven't unsubscribed to that deck so I got your notification.

Sorry, one thing. Kiln Fiend is only red so things like Psychotic Fury and Clout of the Dominus don't work too well with him. Fortunately, Temur Battle Rage would work instead. Also, Artful Dodge can be re-cast unlike Slip Through Space so you can trigger more creatures.

This looks like it dealt a lot of damage in a very short time. Nice work. Cardwise, it even is standard-legal, and i think pummeler-decks aren't that uncommon in this standard.

As a casual deck, there are many things you could include, for example Assault Strobe, Manamorphose, Distortion Strike, Artful Dodge, Fatal Frenzy and many more. But i really think this looks strong.

While you are deciding between Slip Through Space and Distortion Strike, you might want to consider Artful Dodge as well.

ActionBastard Good question, I'm using Artful Dodge over Distortion Strike because Artful Dodge can be cast twice for it'a flashback for an additional +3/+0. Distortion Strike is less useful since we only need a 10/2 Kiln Fiend with Double Strike or Infect. This means we only need to cast Assault Strobe or Tainted Strike and two other spells for lethal, so the additional +1/+0 from Distortion Strike is useless.

Let's say you cast Distortion Strike and Tainted Strike/Assault Strobe, it won't be lethal and we'll be forced to wait on the rebound. The opponent will then get a free turn to remove Kiln Fiend and at your upkeep Distortion Strike will rebound with no targets.

With Artful Dodge you would be able to cast it, and use flashback alongside Assault Strobe/Tainted Strike for lethal, avoiding the extra turn and giving them less opportunities to stop you.

I see you considered using Distortion Strike at one point, so I am curious: why did you choose to switch to Artful Dodge?
